I don't read everything.  I try to read their main history and skim the supplements.  I don't read their science but I think I should start.  I don't read their free choice reading, but I am going to start using that as literature study with my oldest so I think I need to (or can I just get the cliff's notes?)  I work, so I don't have a lot of free time, most of it is spent lesson planning!

Yes but then again my kids mostly read things I read as a kid.

No.  I would bore myself to tears if I did that.  If it is something that I am working with them on for comprehension sake then I do read it.

I read the science, history, social studies, etc.  I read a good portion of their free reading material, but I ain't going to Wimpy Kid it!

Only if I thought it had questionable content.

I had no desire, for example, to read Percy Jackson, lol.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

No, unless it is something I am reading together. I could never keep up with my oldest. He is a reader. If he finds something questionable he will tell me so I am good with that. He will be 12 this summer so he has a pretty good idea what is ok and what is not. I don't think reading everything they are reading is realistic as they get older.

Well If I don't read it then they read it out loud to me. Mine are close to 8, close to 6 and 3.5. So at this age, yes. When they are older I'll probably read the stuff as well to make sure that I feel the content is appropriate for my kids.
